Smarter Balanced Writing Rubrics for ILEARN--FOUND!

Updated: Jan 21, 2022

Clarity is one of my favorite words, and it's also something that will cause me extreme agitation when it's not present.

Teachers and school leaders know that one of the keys to supporting learning is to share clear learning intentions (objectives, I can statements, etc.) with students. We know that these learning intentions should be centered on state standards, communication goals, or social-emotional learning.

We also know that as real clarity in learning is created not only when learning intentions are shared, but also, when success criteria is clear and present (perhaps without the danger). We spend time creating or searching for rubrics and student exemplars, because we want to show our students examples of their targets.
